Lightening the load: Webinar

On 15 November at 11:00 CET, steel manufacturer, ArcelorMittal, and trailer builder, Wielton, will explain how high strength steels can be used to manufacture stronger and lighter equipment while reducing CO2 emissions during manufacturing and fuel consumption on the road.

Heavy duty vehicles have an important role to play in the fight against climate change.

They only represent 2.0 per cent of vehicles on the road in Europe, but they are responsible for about a quarter of CO2 emissions and around 6.0 per cent of total emissions in the EU.

There is a lot to be gained by dramatically reducing the weight of these vehicles with advanced steels.

During this webinar, experts from ArcelorMittal and Wielton will explain how they created a new generation of semi-trailers and tippers which are stronger, more durable, and up to 40 per cent lighter.

The cooperation between steelmaker and OEM has resulted in a more sustainable manufacturing process, and resulted in significant fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions reductions.

The process began with a solid R&D approach including innovative designs, advanced calculations, prototyping, and live testing.

At the manufacturing level, developments in technology, automation, digitalisation, clean energy, and waste and water reduction were considered.

OEMs such as Wielton require a wide range of steel products and solutions so they can achieve the right mass, strength, and stiffness for each part. Solid service and delivery from ArcelorMittal enables OEMs such as Wielton to implement individual solutions and tailor their equipment to the specific needs of each part.

The webinar will be supported by real-life case studies, facts, and figures. ArcelorMittal will also present its plans for the ultra high strength steels (UHSS) of the future and its massive investments in decarbonising steel production.

The 40 minutes presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.
